Preparing to return to work has been an anxious time. By picking Milford Day Nursery, they took the pressure and worry out of childcare for our nine-month-old daughter.
We had eight weeks of settling in sessions with a variety of days, times and activities for her to experience.
This was perfect, so the first full day she was left when returning to work she waved me goodbye and thoroughly enjoyed her day and kept to her routine at home.
All of the staff have been amazingly friendly towards myself and my daughter and I can't recommend them enough!

My son has started settling in sessions in the baby room and he is really enjoying it, he is always excited when I take him and he is always enjoying himself when he's there. All the girls are brilliant and take their job seriously, putting the children first.

Our daughter has been at Milford Pre-School for 8 months. When she first started we were apprehensive about leaving her as she was very clingy and had not been left with many people before. The staff were all fantastic and made us feel at ease leaving our daughter in their care. Over the past 8 months, we have watched our daughter excel in terms of her confidence, speech, personality and understanding of things, she has established a brilliant routine and made some good bonds with her key workers and other staff at nursery. We are very happy with the care our daughter receives here.

Our daughter has had a great experience with Milford day nursery. Her trials seemed effortless and were supported well by the nursery. She is in Toddler 1 now and adores her Key Worker, who supports and helps her as we would. Our daughter was quite clingy to us as parents but now sees her Key Worker as a surrogate parent.

I had to return to work 3 months earlier than expected from my maternity leave. I was so anxious about leaving my daughter but the girls in the baby room made me feel so comfortable knowing she was in caring hands. They listened to all my requests and worked so hard to ensure my daughter felt settled at nursery. 3 months on and she loves coming to nursery and has so much fun. I'm so grateful to all the girls at Asquith Milford for their time, care and support.

We feel that our daughter has a fantastic experience whilst at the nursery. The staff from all rooms are very friendly and spend the time to speak and greet both myself and my daughter every morning. We really enjoyed the Christmas Carol service and felt it's a lovely "extra touch".

An awesome nursery in a beautiful setting. They quickly get to know your children and look after them with highly individualised care. Our children love coming and we know they are safe and secure when we leave them in the morning. They are thriving here and we would wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Milford Day Nursery is a lovely, friendly nursery. My son has been here for three and a half years and has been very happy. My daughter is here now too and is settled and enjoying her time here. I don't worry when I drop them off as I know they are well looked after and enjoy themselves.

I have visited the nursery with my daughter and granddaughter who attends part-time. The first impression is one of an excellently run establishment with safeguarding at the heart of practice. All staff greeted us in a very friendly manner with one practitioner - taking the time to show us around.
I was very impressed with the many and varied themed activities and all were very helpful. However, I would have liked to have seen more information (boards) regarding the EYFS, maybe some sample assessment books (fictional of course) to give parents an all round idea of the full picture.

Natalie Hunt, Online Marketing Manager at Asquith Milford Pre-School & Day Nursery responded to this review on 11 Feb 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to review our nursery.

We are glad that you were made to feel welcome at our open day, however, I believe that our practitioner gave you a tour of the nursery and not a full show round. We would like to invite you along to another session, where our practitioners can give you our full show round, as if your grandchild would be starting at the nursery.
This includes the EYFS and how staff plan this around children's individual interests. When a child starts with us, they have an individual learning journal which is available to parents/grandparents on a daily basis to demonstrate the progress that each child is making. Our display boards are updated regularly with links to the EYFS with explanations about how children are learning, however, we welcome any suggestions for improvement.

Thank you again for your kind review and hope to welcome you again at our nursery.

I cannot say enough good things about this nursery. The staff are all fantastic, they genuinely care about the children and their knowledge regarding all aspects of child development is second to none. I was worried as a new mum about putting my son in nursery but it has been amazing for him, he has come on leaps and bounds since he started at Milford Day Nursery. I wish I had put him in earlier. He is just so happy to be there each morning. The nursery has a real family feel, everyone speaks to you as you go in and they all know my son by name. It's just a fantastic environment.
